“Nice, new property”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

We were having difficulty finding lodging for the three nights were planned to be in Sarasota. Therefore, we were glad to learn about this new hotel on TA. I agree, it still smelled like a new building.
The rooms were spacious and clean. The beds were very comfortable and the linens nice. Actually, after the first night, I slept better here than I had been sleeping at home recently. The room had many amenities such as free internet, microwave, refrigerator, flat screen TV with many channels, etc. They now seem to be charging $1.50 per night for the safe even if it is not used. The water for the shower were plenty adequate, but the volume of water coming to our third floor room made filling the wash basin a slow process We had a room with a king bed. Each side of the bed had wall lamps as well as a high intensity reading lamp on a gooseneck--what a good idea! Many electrical outlets were available.
The breakfast was very good compared to the included buffet breakfasts at other hotels. Each morning there were three types of eggs, scrambled, scrambled with cheese, and boiled. Also, bacon or sausage and waffles as well as the usual juices, pastries, cereal, etc. were available.
Also, we were quoted a higher price for the third night than the first two. On check-out we were given the lower price for all three nights, making my complaint about the safe charge seem petty.

Room Tip: There seemed to be more problems with internet access on the second floor than the other two floors...

We came upon this hotel after driving all day, arrived late at night. Eric at the front desk was very nice and so helpful, he even called Gecko's Grill and Pub to let them know he had some guest that just arrived and will be going by to eat. That's exceptional customer service. We had a room with a king size bed and a sofa bed, room was a good size. Modern decor, frig, microwave, free Wifi and very clean. Breakfast is the standard as in most hotels. Hostesses in the breakfast area were very nice and attentive. Other staff members we came in contact during our stay were also very nice. Note this is a new hotel only been open for 1 month. It is in a great area as well. We definitely will stay again!!

Room Tip: This hotel sits in the back of the main road no noise to be heard.

Brand new hotel with good free breakfast and friendly staff. The location is convenient to the beach and downtown Sarasota. The rooms are exactly as described. The hotel is within 15-20 minutes of everything. Didn't get to use the swimming pool but it looked nice and clean. There are plenty of restaurants close to the hotel. Walgreens is within walking distance.

This is by far my favorite hotel. It is brand new, you can still smell the new carpeting and paint in the stairways. We felt completely at home here and the location is close to everything we wanted to do while in Sarasota. The complementary breakfast had everything you would want and they even have brown paper bags to go at the front desk if you are in a hurry. The staff was very helpful, we had a small issue with the television and literally 2 minutes after I got off the phone with the front desk, they were knocking on the door. The overall decor in this hotel is very tasteful and well designed, it felt like a luxury hotel for sure. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a comfortable, worry free stay.

This Comfort Suites is brand new and just off of Clark Road in Sarasota. The staff was very cordial and polite and the breakfast was very good and the area was well kept. It is pretty hard to find any fault with a property that is brand new and everything is clean neat and the staff must have had good training before they opened. I definitely would stay here again if I return to the area.

During my trip through the whole state of Florida I booked this Motel online.
When I arrived I was impressed: everything is brand new, the staff is always very very nice. They made my stay perfect. I enjoyed my room, lots of space, nice view outside.
I enjoyed the breakfast, everything really good. I enjoyed the fitness center, brand new machines.
So, I can recommend this hotel without any doubt.
Usually, when Motels or Hotels open, there are some things, that are not running good. But not here. Great experience!

Sehr empfehlenswertes Motel, alles perfekt. Geheimtipp, da sehr neu!

Room Tip: Please ask for the view to the little pond, very nice view to the west, especially when the sun come...
